    I worked at University of Florida full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked as a Student Assistant for most of my time while attending undergraduate at UF. My supervisors were very approachable and gave students a good deal of flexibility with studies and work.

    Cons

    The work could be tedious some days and brings a very limited impact to one's resume.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at University of Florida.

    Interview Details

    I contacted this particular principle investigator through an annual scientific conference. They had a process to connect soon-to-be graduates with prospective employers. After returning home (I still had to defend my thesis) the employer invited me to come visit his his lab and the University. He paid all expenses. We seemed to get on well and he was very excited about the prospect of my coming to work there. he made it clear I was the top candidate. In short, he promised me the moon. It all sounded very good, but i had a tiny voice in my head telling he might be crazy. Against my better instincts, I took the job, moved myself and my family and proceeded to live in 2 years of hell. I was young and naive. the most I took away from this position was the ability to deal with extremely difficult people. He was a very intelligent and technically skillful man and I did learn a lot from him, but in the end, it was a miserable experience.
